      Hand afspelen

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K, K.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, MP3 calls $0.16, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.38) 7, 8, T (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, MP3 raises to $3.92(All-In), Hero ???

      Final Pot: $0.66.

      Villain is unknown.

      I don't see him doing this with a set, as he would be laying down massive value. Would he do this with a flush draw/overcards/complete bluff? I'm finding it rather strange that he's shoving his whole stack.

      Hello rvvrecke,

      Such play doesn't make sense at all but of course it's kinda hard to make the Call profitable for us, since he may as well sometimes ship there with pure nuts and I wouldn't he ain't shoving there with sets as well for the reason that he board is so drawy and he is trying to make you fold your draws or whatever, is scared you drawing and hitting.

      But also it could be that he is trying to get maximum fold equity with some hand like T9 or whatsoever and against them we even have near coinflip. Therefore I'd just Bet/Fold for the reason that we don't have any reads or stats on him or either we haven't invested that much into the pot.

      Best regards.
